Today is the release day for my sixth Darkyn novel, Twilight Fall. This book features Valentin Jaus, the suzerain from Chicago who first appeared in Private Demon, and Liling Harper, a gardener who (indirectly) works for Jaus at a private rehabilitation hospital. The series protagonists, Alexandra Keller and Michael Cyprien, also return to continue their quest for everlasting love, a cure for the Darkyn, and what to do on the LearJet during those long, boring flights to the West coast.
So far the feedback from my readers has been quite positive, something I really wasn't expecting after the popularity of Evermore, which was a very different book from this one. Also, two cameo scenes from TF have resulted in a flood of requests for Rain and Farlae's story. I would have to do that as a free e-book, and I can't promise anything, as I've already got Incarnatio to work on for this fall. But if/when the work schedule permits, I hope to write a novella about the guys and how they met.
It's tough for me to ask readers to buy my books when the economy is so bad, but this is how I make my living, and sales of my work in print provide the funds for everything else I do here at PBW. That and if I don't do at least one straight self-promo post for the book, I think they will send someone to the house to break my legs. So if you enjoy dark fantasy and vampire fiction, and you have some room on a gift card or a few bucks to spare, I hope you'll check out Twilight Fall, now available for order online or at most U.S. bookstores nationwide.
